Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/. Today marks the 28th anniversary of the adoption of the democratic Constitution of Mongolia.
Mongolia has had four constitutions in its history with each of its discussions held in 1924, 1940, 1960, and 1992 respectively. While the earlier constitutions were revolved around the Marxist ideology, the new 1992 Constitution is considered democratic as it protects the common interest of the citizens of Mongolia without discrimination of social class and ideology. Thus, the day of January 13 came to be marked as the Constitution Day each year.
Discussion on the new democratic Constitution of Mongolia was held among over 430 deputies of the People’s Great Khural, and over 50 members of the State Baga Khural over the course of 75 days. The public discussion also involved about 75 percent of 1.2 million citizens, the total population of Mongolia at the time, and over 200 thousand suggestions were received on the matter.
